“Tirta Naga - Serene Villas”
Reviewed April 15, 2012

We have just returned from a trip to Bali and were lucky enough to stay at the villa Tirta Naga. We had a great time and would thoroughly recommend both Serene Villas and Villa Tirta Naga if you are looking for a wonderful villa where you can relax and be pampered. We originally booked the Serene Villas - Lotus Villa, a couple of days before we left for Bali we were upgraded to the Villa Tirta Naga. From the moment we arrived nothing was too much trouble. The villa was beautiful (the photo's on the website were a true reflection of what we found when we arrived). There was a large outdoor living area, a kitchen from which our wonderful butler Ayu prepared our breakfast ever morning !, a large outdoor bathroom with a comfortable stone bath - great for relaxing at the end of a long day of walking / shopping and the choice of two pools. The staff were fabulous and the location was great. We were very close to the Oberoi flea markets and a short walk to Seminyak Square (good supermarket close by) and "Eat Street". The cab fare to Kuta / Tuban was never more than $3.00 AUD. We had a great time and would certainly return again. If you are looking for a relaxing holiday away from it all, then this ticks all the boxes. You wouldn't even need to leave the villa if you didn't want to. If you have a spare night I would also recommend the "romantic dinner". Your butler comes to the villa ahead of time and sets up the pool deck area with lanterns and a candle lit / flower adorned table and chairs and their chef comes in to your villa to prepare you a three course meal. It is a perfect ending to a very enjoyable trip ! Loved it !!!!!

Room Tip: Tirta Naga has a great location away from the hustle and bustle, but still close enough to safely wa...

Friends recommended Serene Villas and it was the best recommendation we have ever received. We stayed in the Hibiscus Villa which was a little piece of paradise; beautiful tropical gardens, two stunning bedrooms, modern bathrooms, very comfortable living area, kitchen and a decent sized pool. The staff were so friendly and couldn't do enough for us. Our private butler Yani made the stay even more enjoyable cooking us breakfast every morning, making the best cappuccinos I have ever had and this all with a smile. The villa was spotlessly clean and very well appointed. After many trips to Bali I would say this is the best accommodation I have ever stayed in.

Room Tip: Hibiscus Villa all the way

Our recent one week stay in Villa Hibiscus was a joy to behold. We travelled to Bali after a 30 year hiatis and our re introduction to Bali could not have been better. Starting with our very caring and "nothing was too much trouble" butler "Yani", from the breakfast she prepared so beautifully to the housekeeping of the villa she really was the best thing about our stay at Hibiscus Villa. The daily cleaning of the pool and picking up of fallen leaves by the maintenance staff with a cheery "good morning" was appreciated.The location of the Villa was close to cheap and cheerful restaurants and only a $2 - $4 taxi ride to more upmarket restaurants.During our week we found shortcuts via adjacent laneways to the hustle and bustle of Jl. Raya Basangkasa where we were able have regular massages at Jari Menari and pedicures,manicures facials and foot reflexology at Espace. To be able to escape the sound of traffic, crowds of people and your own swimming pool was bliss at the end of a busy day. The bed surrounds of mosquito netting together with mosquito coil holders (lit at night) in the living area kept us free from being bitten. In finishing I would like to mention the friendliness of all the staff but special thanks must go to Yani! We will definately be back!! Our family consisted of 4 adults

Room Tip: Both bedrooms were generous in size. Living/dining room table and seating with large coffee table an...

We found Serene Villa when searching the internet and looking for a Villa in Seminyak that would supply a temporary pool fence. The piece of mind this gave us with our 2 yr old son was invaluable. We stayed at Palm 2, it was just as their website displayed. The Villa was beautifully furnished, extremely clean and with your own private pool, what more could you ask for. We were welcomed with a fruit basket and complimentary drinks, just what is needed after flying 6 hours with a 2 yr old. Our butler and new friend Sucipta was fantastic. He was friendly and very attentive, cooking up an incredible breakfast every morning, at a time that suited us. Sucipta arranged transport for the trips that we wanted to do, suggested local restaurants after we let him know that we wanted to try local cuisine and arranged for the most amazing baby sitter anyone could hope for - Ayu. If you wanted complete privacy that is what you got. A very enjoyable holiday spot indeed.

Villa Kiran was absolutely amazing. After spending hours searching the internet for a villa to stay we were recommended this sister villa (by email) by the staff at Space Villa in Bali as they were fully booked. Villa Kiran only opened late 2011 and was absolutely everything and more that the photos promise on the website. We stayed for 8 nights. Our butler, Sumi was amazing and cooked us a beautiful breakfast each morning. She was more than willing to book and suggest things to do in Bali. She always greeted us with a smile and was very professional, her english is fantastic. We absolutely recommend doing the cooking class at the villa, Wayan and Sumi cooked (we helped) and we asked plenty of questions. The food was absolutely spectacular! The villa was cleaned to superior standards each day, the pool was stunning and nothing was too much to ask. Hands down, this was a 5 star experience, the only thing is...I wish we stayed longer! Thank you Sumi and Serene Villas for making our holiday perfect!

You just can't beat the privacy and convenience of having your own villa.

The two butlers Sunjaya and Wina were most helpful as well as the rest of the staff. 

Very good cooking/food, very clean pool and very well serviced rooms.

Can't pick a fault with this place.

We were first introduced to Space at Bali and due to it being fully booked, we were referred to her sister villa, SERENE Villa. We requested for 2-BR villa but was told that all their 2-BR were fully booked. Sumawati offered us their 3-BR, Villa Palm 1 at 2-BR rates, by shutting up one of the bedroom. Great deal, right!
It is an excellent villa if you want privacy and a time to truly unwind and relax. My children enjoy the private pool, outdoor shower experiences and the bed was exceedingly comfortable ending each day with a wonderful restful sleep.
KADEK, the butler was superb at his service towards my family. He is very attentive, speaks excellent English and whips up a fantastic breakfast every morning based on your choice of menu and desired time to be served.
KADEK welcomes us at our villa room upon our arrival with complimentary drinks, checks us in on our behalf, introduces us to a 500 movies selection, shows us the kitchen where he will personally cooks for us, proposed arrangement for transports, spa treatments, etc...all you have to do is name it and KADEK will see that it is done.
Though, currently there are renovations in the premise to have more 1 BR villas and enhancement to the villa office, it is still as serene as the villa promises us to be.
My children is thrilled and have expressed their intent to be back to Serene Villa should we decide to be in Bali again.
